The Milky Way

Colourful and varied seaweed on the beach this morning. And this driftwood seems to be a grinch-like face sticking out its tongue.
I used Garry oak leaves to dye some cotton, using milk as a mordant this time and it worked pretty well.

I can see veins on some of the leaves but I'd like to add colour from another local plant, still.

I used to live in Calgary, so I can imagine. It sounds like you have some good other choices from the florist shop?
